Our Heartfelt Mission

The mission of CMAC is to facilitate community and agency collaboration, identify critical issues and promote response strategies pertaining to the aging population.

Long viewed as a collaborative collection of professionals and advocates who care passionately about seniors, CMAC remains committed to the seamless, collaborative focus on making the world a better place for our local older adults and their caregivers.

Long viewed as a collaborative collection of professionals who care passionately about seniors, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Aging Coalition has its original roots dating back to 1993 when a Home and Community Block Grant Advisory Committee, appointed by the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners, recommended broader consideration regarding the specific needs of older adults. Our mission statement was created in 1994 and remains the same today:

To facilitate community and agency collaboration, identify critical issues and promote response strategies pertaining to the aging population.

Since that time, CMAC has partnered with the Council on Aging, Area Agency on Aging, United Way and multiple senior service providers to address issues within the senior population. Some of our major initiatives include conducting an Aging Survey with response recommendations, presenting workshops on The Aging Explosion, coordinating Older American Month activities, leading Hunger in the Senior Community and Harvest for All Seasons programs, and delivering Emergency Preparedness Kits to 250 home-bound seniors.

Today, CMAC remains committed to the seamless, collaborative focus on making the world a better place for our local older adults and their caregivers.
